Twin sister duo Tegan and Sara released their critically and commercially acclaimed Hearthrob earlier this year, and with it, the duo stepped out from beneath the grey clouds that made their previous material some of the best for anchoring the soundtrack of my adolescent angst. With this new sound, drenched in an undeniable pop-synth sheath, the twosome are now anchoring another soundtrack — that of the Matthew McConaughey / Jared Leto film Dallas Buyers Club.
Tegan and Sara’s latest single, “Shudder to Think,” exclusively premiered on Rolling Stone and picks right up, musically speaking, where Hearthrob left off. The track contemplates the “what-ifs” and “could-have-beens” of a love not taken. The track will be available on iTunes October 29th.
Dallas Buyers Club, starring Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, and Jared Leto, opens in New York and Los Angeles on November 1st and in other cities throughout November. Based on a true story, McConaughey plays a Texas man battling AIDS. Denied treatment, he travels over the border to illicitly obtain the proper medications himself.
Other artists on the soundtrack include Thirty Seconds to Mars, My Morning Jacket, Manchester Orchestra, Neon Trees, Fitz and the Tantrums, Portugal. The Man, Cold War Kids, Capital Cities, AWOLNATION, The Naked and Famous, The Airborne Toxic Event, and Blondfire. Full track listing below.
